The winless Bills closed as 17-point underdogs coming into Week 3's contest the Vikings at Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

The fans booed early and often in the Vikings' second-worst defeat in the three-year history of the stadium.

This Vikings team is expected to overcome any adversity it might face. And it kept getting worse.

That's because Buffalo's front seven, with former Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier serving as defensive co-ordinator, overwhelmed Minnesota's offensive line.

Though Allen took three sacks and fumbled three times, the Bills were able to recover all of them. Josh Allen looked like a seasoned veteran in his second career start, completing 15 passes for 196 yards and one touchdown.

The Bills, as you would expect, taking a slow and methodical ground based approach to run clock up 27-0 in this game.

Cousins has a lot to celebrate in his career from his ascension of being drafted as Robert Griffin's backup to signing a landmark contract as a coveted National Football League starter. Matt Milano got to Cousins on third down for Bills fourth sack of the game.

Vikings: In addition to Cook and DE Everson Griffen (knee), backup TE David Morgan (knee) and PR Marcus Sherels (ribs) were held out.

On Sunday, the Vikings lost cornerback Trae Waynes and tackle Brian O'Neill in the first half with ankle injuries.

The upside is and on a day like this you need to find that silver lining - they have 13 games to redeem themselves.

Bailey didn't get on the field to attempt a field goal Sunday and had to be wondering if he had made the right decision by waiting to sign with the Vikings.
